UCI Health Planned Giving

You can read further about the following two inspiring stories of donors and how their generosity created personally meaningful and lasting impact in our community.

  • Laguna Beach resident Vicki Gumm made a transformational gift through her family foundation, the Kling Family Foundation, to advance the research and work of Dr. William Armstrong and the UCI Health head and neck cancer team, who she credits for saving her life.
  • UC Irvine alumni Drs. Geraldine Taplin (MD, '72) and John T. Morrison (MD, '72) were instrumental in the committee that organized the School of Medicine Class of 1972's 50th reunion and kickstarted their class gift. This involvement led to their bequest commitment to endow a scholarship fund which will support second, third or fourth year medical students who are enrolled in the MD/MPH program and are interested in pursuing a career that incorporates work within infectious diseases or public health.

At UCI Health, we are in the unique position to transform healthcare with our unmatched expertise, dedication to innovation, ability to train future world-class providers, and relentless pursuit to improve health and wellness. Through your strategic gift, you partner with us and ensure that those in our community and beyond have access to the best possible healthcare. In this brochure, we highlight a few tax-efficient ways to support our mission and the reason why our donors have utilized these methods of giving.

If you are interested in learning about other tax-efficient ways to support our mission - such as charitable gift annuities, bequests and more - or would like additional information about the giving options listed above, please contact the Office of Planned Giving at (949) 824-8134 or [email protected] .
